Santa Ynez Valley Rose Wine
(Pinot Noir, Viognier ...and a few other things)
Something about Rose reminds me of the Vargas girls and the early days of erotica (what was it that the supreme court justice said: “hard to explain the difference between erotica and pornography, but I know it when I see it” – this is the former) – Unretouchedis innocent but seductive. This bottle is like opening an unexpected present of lovely rose petal, citrus oil, and cool mountain meadow fragrances, and whatever is in that package fulfills all the expectations we might have of a warm summer afternoon in the cool woods.
Food: Everything. …best something greasy, hamburgers for a late weekend lunch would be great, if its dinner time already, Chinese would be unbeatable
Music: Early Velvet Underground, later some Ravi Shankar and later yet, the Flat Duo Jets or Sleepy Le Beef’s “All The Game”
